Five arrested after robbery in Salisbury street

FIVE people have been arrested after a robbery in Salisbury that left a man with a broken nose and other injuries.

The incident – which also saw the man’s phone, shoes and airpods stolen – unfolded in the early hours of May 8 as a man made his way home along Fisherton Street.

The man, in his 20s, noticed a group of people down an alleyway.

“When he approached the group, a verbal altercation took place,” a Wiltshire Police spokesperson said.

“The group assaulted him leaving him with a number of injuries including a fractured nose and bruising to his ribs and face.”

While he was being assaulted, the victim had his mobile phone, shoes and airpods stolen, they added.

Police are now urging anyone who was in the area at around 2am who have witnessed the incident to contact them, as well as anyone who may have been driving in the area with a dash cam fitted to their vehicle which may have captured relevant footage.

One woman aged in her 30s, and four men aged between 30 and 51, have been arrested on suspicion of robbery and released under investigation while enquiries continue.
